Arcane will be helping Matt ArtPix on his stall at the Langport Vintage Market.
We'll be in The Undercroft, so should be able to remain dry if our unsettled weather continues.
If there's room, there will be a small selection of Arcane's pre-loved and vintage books. First, a shelf of smaller books priced from 50p to £5.
We will also bring a few of our lovely stock of fashion books! Here's our selection for the event:
Finally, we made it to the fab Bridport Vintage Market after our no show last month because of the rain! We had managed to become regulars at this lovely event before the pandemic, and it now feels like we have to build everything up again after two years away...
It was great to be back to the market which is the closest regular event to our HQ and is located in the wonderful Arts and Vintage Quarter (St Michael's estate) in Bridport.
We really had a lovely day and Matt ArtPix sold quite a few bulky items, which is always good when you have to put your stock in our little van! This market is also brilliant to meet interesting people...
We cannot wait for the next market which will be on 29th August (Bank Holiday).
Old Albion is a fantastic shop full of treasures... The resident dog kept us entertained the whole day, especially when he decided to have a nap right in the middle of the entrance! He is incredibly cute...
The infamous Red Brick Cafe was of course as busy as always and kept the punters happy with their yummy food and drinks!
Our next event will be at the Langport Vintage Market, where we will have a small corner on Matt ArtPix's stall! It's in Langport, Somerset.
On Sunday morning, the Arcane/ArtPix team was up at 4am and made their way to Somerset to trade at The Giant Shepton Flea where we smashed our sales records last month!
It was a blisteringly hot day and we knew the weather would be dry (good), but we didn't expect it to be that hot (bad)... Unfortunately, it meant that punters didn't turn up in their usual numbers and headed for the beach - or stayed in their cool homes...
Therefore, it was a quieter than usual event, and doggy customers (rightly) were sorely missed! Nevertheless, a few hot pooches enjoyed a few slurps of fresh water we had put at their disposal...
Our next event will be the Bridport Vintage Market in Bridport, Dorset, this Sunday 25th July. Arcane will have a very small selection of hand-picked volumes at very affordable prices!
This time, we'll be there even if it rains!
Also, over the next two weeks, we will add quite a few items to the Arcane Publishing Facebook Marketplace.
As we will not be able to set up our online shop before 2022 because of work commitments, we will try and have a few of our items online over the summer, then we'll have a break and come back bigger in January 2022!
This Sunday is the second event of the year for the Arcane/ArtPix team!
Well, actually, on paper, it will be the third event in our events page but we had to cancel the Bridport Vintage Market on June 25th due to bad weather.
At the moment, the forecast seems to be on our side. The first Giant Shepton Flea of the year was record-breaking for us (read all about it HERE)... Our aim is to do even better this weekend!
Below is a flavour of the Arcane stock we will be bringing on Sunday... There will be more, including paperbacks at 50p, a few French board games and much, much more! Of course, Matt ArtPix will have a wide range of vintage, pre-loved and recycled items for sale!
Art, cinema, fashion, design, music and intriguing vanished architecture...
